My name is Ian Arthur and I am a wedding photographer. I photograph weddings both large and small at Loch Lomond, Glasgow, Argyll and across Scotland, telling wedding stories through my picture taking.
Soon its going to be your wedding day, and one of the happiest days of your life, and as lasting reminders of this special day, your pictures are important. This is why you need a photographer with experience to capture your day, and why choosing your photographer is one of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make when planning your wedding.
Your wedding day is the start of a new journey and I would like to share a small part of this journey with you in the best way I can – through my photography. So if you’re planning your wedding, please visit my picture galleries and see how my photography could fit into your day.
I am also a portrait photographer, and I create portraits in Helensburgh, Loch Lomond and in Glasgow, and maybe a little bit further away.
Besides portraits I also photograph special occasions - and whether its for singles, couples, families, engagements, birthdays, celebrations, family get-together’s, your pet or even equine, then I am more than happy to capture this special occasion and your moment in time.
I don’t photograph portraits in a studio, instead I prefer to work outdoors and on location. And because there are so many parts of Loch Lomond and Glasgow that are both beautiful and interesting, they make great locations for portrait photography. I also use natural light for my portraits as I believe this offers the best opportunity to capture the mood of the occasion. Please visit my galleries to see some of my pictures.

THE NICE THINGS CLIENTS SAID
The images you captured on the day are simply stunning and the friendly way you dealt with everyone was great. You were unbelievably patient as we revised and revised again the proof of the wedding album so we could get it just as we wanted it – and the Storybook is perfect.Gillian and John – Cardiff
On the day you were unobtrusive but captured the whole story of the day. All our guests commented on your friendly energetic approach but said they didn’t feel bored by long sessions as they have at other weddings. Thank you so much for our wonderful wedding day memories.Kirsten and Colin – London
All our family and friends commented on how friendly and professional you were and also how relaxed you made everyone feel during the whole wedding day. Thank you for making our day so memorable and giving us such amazing photographs. Thank you so much…!Laura and Alan – Glasgow
Large weddings are just wonderful. Full of activity, people and noise. If you are worried that there may be too many people for one photographer, then there's nothing to worry about, as I'm as just as comfortable photographing a wedding with two hundred people as well as two people. However big your wedding, I would be more than happy to capture your large wedding day.
Are you having smaller wedding, or even an elopement wedding with 'Just wee two'...? I love these kind of days, as fewer guests gives me the time and space to capture your day, capturing the formal parts as well as the more candid monents that unfold during the day. Whether its during the week or over the weekend, I love these smaller wedding days and the joy they bring.
If you are planning a same sex wedding or ceremony and are just a little bit nervous about having a photographer for your day, then don't worry because I have the experience of knowing what to expect during a Gay Wedding. Whether its a large or small wedding, or just the two of you, having professional pictures will capture your day and prolong those memories.
Although I am located in the coastal town of Helensburgh, I actually photograph weddings of all shapes and sizes throughout Scotland - including Loch Lomond, Glasgow, Stirling, Argyll, Ayrshire and the Highlands.
Besides weddings, I also photograph portraits of singles, couples, families, special occasions and even pets or horses. I don’t use a studio but work entirely on location, either somewhere outdoors at your home.
With over 30 years experience as a full-time and professional photographer, I have photographed hundreds of weddings. Weddings of all shapes and sizes, and weddings that never fail to amaze or make me smile.
